There were also reports that Admiral Byrd of the US Navy led a task force to Antarctica in 1947 in an operation codenamed "highjump",how verifiable
this is I have no idea,but interesting all the same.
ADMIRAL BYRD AND OPERATION HIGHJUMP
...In 1947, Admiral Richard E. Byrd led 4,000 military troops from the U.S.,
Britain and Australia in an invasion of Antarctica (Operation Highjump and
follow-up), but encountered heavy resistance from Nazi 'flying saucers' and
had to call off the invasion. A Rear-Admiral who was in that invasion has
retired in Texas, and said he was shocked when he read the *Fire From The
Sky* material. He knew there were a lot of aircraft and rocket shoot-downs
but did not realize the situation was so bad.
The invasion of ANTARCTICA consisted of three battle groups from Norfolk,
VA, on Dec. 2, 1946. They were led by Byrd's command ship, the ice-breaker
*Northwind,* and consisted of the catapult ship *Pine Island,* the destroyer
*Brownsen,* the aircraft-carrier *Phillipines Sea,* the U.S. submarine *Sennet,*
two support vessels *Yankee* and *Merrick,* and two tankers *Canisted* and
*Capacan,* the destroyer *Henderson* and a floatplane ship *Currituck.* A
British-Norwegian force and a Russian force, and I believe some Australian
and Canadian forces were also involved.
